I have had anxiety attacks in the past, was on medication,attacks went away as fast as they came...I had them daily for about 2 years, never missed work, tried to carry on regular after I figured out I wasn't dying...I have been under a lot of stress lately , work , home and extra projects, one new grandson, planning a wedding for our oldest dgt...anyway... for the past 2 months my PMS with my cycle has been really bad...causing some extra anxiety...I got really angry about a week ago , which is really not like me, but anyway, I sarted having chest pain and my left arm was hurting, and burning, my left jaw was killing me... ever since that I have been freaked out... and I still have PMS...I have daily been having twinges of anxiety attacks, my arm hurts everyday, and burns , and I am having extreme indigestion...I am a nurse and so is my husband...I went to a cardiologist... he said he tought there was nothing wrong but wants to do a heart cath...that really has me freaked... Has anyone experienced this surge of anxiety somwhat like this along with PMS>..... I started taking Zoloft again 2 days ago...and I have some Xanax but don't like to take that... I keep telling all of them , if it was my heart , I would be dead already... thanks for listening...hope someone can relate... thanks sherrymc

Hi and welcome
Yes there have been a few on here in the past that went thru this and it turned out to be a/p nothing wrong with heart and the body pains, aches will accompany a/p to a great point
I am so sore in the am's it takes me at least a couple of hours to get moving around
I have crohns and other illnesses as well so that also attributes to my hard mornings

I am sure you will get some more input from ppl
Again Welcome and hope you decide to stick around get the support and empathy you so deserve

Be well........LYN

Hi and welcome. I wish you a good stay here. I am Kitt.

Please look around and post as you feel comfortable. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the site.

I know you can have many many different symptoms from anxiety and as far as PMs again everyone is different. I am glad you have made your appointment with cardiologist. Did your EKG indicate any abnomality?

Stay with us and keep posting.

Again Welcome.
